Actor/director Ben Affleck spoke to the Canadian press recently and shot down the rumor of his potential involvement with a Justice League live action movie.
“I’m not working on the Justice League. One of the problems with entertainment web sites is that they need to fill pages, and that’s how rumours get started. Justice League sounds really exciting, but it’s not something I’m working on.”
Other sources say that Warner Brothers did put the offer on the table and for whatever reason Affleck didn’t take it. So does this mean Justice League is back in development Hell? Absolutely not. WB wants a Justice League movie to be made especially after the blockbuster success of The Avengers. Rumor has it that the studio is looking at Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) for the gig. Expect more on that within the next three or four weeks.
